While trolling the Craigslist Free Section Dan came across this great find. A free front loading energy efficient washing machine. The catch was that the door was broken, we decided to risk it and see if it could be easily fixed. Turns out there was just one small plastic piece on the door that was broken that cost about $10 to replace. After replacing that, and the back drainage tube we now have a new (to us) fully functioning energy efficient washing machine.
Keep your eyes peeled and always check for second hand before buying new!
